As the round-robin play in the initial Group stage has concluded the knock-out stage is set to start on Tuesday, November the 5th and Nigeria winners of Group B will be in action against the Netherlands (below) after been drawn with the 3rd best runner up of Group D
For Nigerians in Nigeria eager to watch the game, they may need to set their alarm clocks or brew a pot of coffee as the match will kick-off at 20:00 Brazilian time which will be Midnight Nigerian Time.
Both teams come into the encounter at the heels of different outcomes.
The 5-time champion is coming off a 2-1 defeat by Australia's Joeys despite outplaying them. Team Oranje meanwhile pounded the USA 4:0 after a dismal start that saw them lose 3:0 to Japan and 3:1 to Senegal.
Since the two have never faced each other, and the only common denominator between both teams is Japan, to whom the Eaglets lost 1:0 in their last tune-up game, as opposed to the 3:0 the Dutch suffered, Nigeria is certainly the favourite.
At least on paper and by Awareness Sports which predicts a 2:0 win for Nigeria.
